Bobby Deol humorously recalled a conversation that eventually led to his casting in “Race 3,” stating, “So then he [Salman Khan] remembered that and after a couple of years, I got a phone call from him, and he said, ‘Mamu shirt utarega?’ I said, ‘Haan mamu main kuch bhi karunga.’ So, that’s how I got Race. [Mamu, will you take your shirt off? I said, ‘Mamu, I will do anything].'”
